Latest Cell cycle Stories
In a study to be published in the journal Nature, two Dartmouth researchers have found that the protein cyclin A plays an important but previously unknown role in the cell division process, acting as a master controller to ensure the faithful segregation of chromosomes during cell division.
A team of University of Montreal and McGill University researchers have devised a method to identify how signaling molecules orchestrate the sequential steps in cell division.
Biologists reported today in Nature that they have identified two pathways through which chromosomes are rearranged in mammalian cells.
Baker's yeast is a popular test organism in biology. Yeasts are able to duplicate single chromosomes reversibly and thereby adapt flexibly to environmental conditions. Scientists have now systematically studied the genetics of this process, which biologists refer to as aneuploidy.
Researchers at Warwick Medical School have identified the key role played by a team of proteins in the process of mitosis.
The duplication of cellular contents and their distribution to two daughter cells during cell division are amongst the most fundamental features of all life on earth.
A team of scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies has identified why disruption of a vital pathway in cell cycle control leads to the proliferation of cancer cells.
Scientists studying cancer development have known about micronuclei for some time.
Building on research published eight years ago in the journal Chemistry and Biology, Kenneth S. Kosik, Harriman Professor in Neuroscience and co-director of the Neuroscience Research Institute (NRI) at UC Santa Barbara, and his team have now applied their findings to two distinct, well-known mouse models, demonstrating a new potential target in the fight against Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases.
University of Montreal researchers have discovered a novel molecular mechanism that can potentially slow the progression of some cancers and other diseases of abnormal growth.
